Yao On Trial at West Ham
Saturday, 24th Jul 2010 17:41
Former Town midfielder Devann Yao is on trial with West Ham and scored a goal as a Hammers XI lost 4-2 to League Two Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium this afternoon. The American was released by Town at the end of the season.
The 20-year-old wideman netted his goal just before half-time, curling the ball into the net from 16 yards.
The New Yorker, who was previously with Metz, Pisa, Livorno and St Mirren, spent a long spell on trial with the Blues late last year, winning himself a contract until the end of the season. However, the Yao failed to impress in Town’s reserves and was let go in May without making a senior appearance.

Mick Gives Us Wings by JollyJourno
I wish I could have been there when Mick McCarthy first tasted it. The look on his face. The glint in his eye. The dawning realisation that this was the missing ingredient in the promotion recipe he's been formulating ever since arriving at Portman Road.

What a great week to be a Town fan! Nobody ever handed out prizes in August, but it is exhilarating to be top of the pile with 10 points, 10 goals and number 10 signed up on a long-term deal.
